To help spread awareness of important information as it unfolds regarding the COVID-19 crisis and how it impacts cardiovascular health and the lives of people with heart disease, we will update this list of resources here.
Cardiac effects of Covid-19: Review a presentation used by our executive director in a lecture series for cardiology residents.
Cardiovascular medications and the heart: This quick report from the CCS and Canadian Heart Failure Society addresses concerns around use of certain heart meds and anti-inflammatory drugs as it relates to COVID-19. For patients and clinicians.
Community care for heart patients during pandemic: The CCS has issued this guidance for community cardiologists toward pre-emptive care that will limit their patients’ trips to the hospital, direct patients to specialized care, and reduce the burden on family physicians.
Clinical guidance for cardiovascular care team: A bulletin from the American College of Cardiology gives guidance to clinicians.
Cardiac interventions during the pandemic: The Canadian Association of Interventional Cardiology explores precautions and procedures for coronary and structural cardiac interventions in this report.
European Society of Cardiology resources: Videos, stories, resources and recommendations from the ESC for clinicians.
American Heart Association resources: Information for patients and health-care professionals from the AHA regarding COVID-19.
American College of Cardiology resources: The ACC has set up a hub for clinical guidance during regarding COVID-19.
